Inbox Zero

I was browsing around the inbox zero site after watching Merlin Mann's google talk video on getting your inbox to zero and ran across the following.

He found the IQ of those who tried to juggle messages and work fell by 10 points -- the equivalent to missing a whole night's sleep and more than double the 4-point fall seen after smoking marijuana.

Sleep deprivation is worse than marijuana?

(And though I mentioned in my blog about trying to get my inbox to zero some time ago, I haven't truly succeeded. I am still a slacker and those emails that I don't know how to respond to end up sitting in my inbox accreting guilt.

I do think my inbox has improved some. I'm usually at about two screen-fulls of mail, and when I hit 3 I remember that I probably should clean out some of the junk.

Oh yeah, and the inbox zero video was fun.
